reported earlier in the week in critical swing state of ohio, romney is leading in that poll, 50-48. the importance of winning that state cannot be understated. perhaps nobody knows the politics of the buckeye state better than my next guest. joining me from cleveland, ohio, governor john kasich. >> before we get started. i want to say to the listeners, i hope we're saying our prayers to folks on the east coast that have been hard hit, out here in the buckeye stated, our hearts go out to you on and so do our prayers. stay strong and we'll do what we can to help. >> sean: america always rises to the occasion. the tsunami happened. that the people we are. we thank you for that. i to have tell you the devastation on long island. new jersey, entire communities are wiped out. it's going to take a while to rebuild. let me first ask you, governor, there was a report today, it was the drudge report, more voters are selecting romney on the machine in marion, ohio and it shows up obama. have you looked into these problems? are you concerned about 30 some days with voting in ohio? >> we hav
has cut the president's lean that state to just two poin. romney will spend his entiry paul is showing romney has cut the lead in that state to two points. romney will spend his entire day in the state of virginia and the president will hit wisconsin, colorado and way out here in nevada. >> california voters are still on the fence about the governor's tax height proposal. >> ann in san francisco with how prop 30 campaign is drumming up support before the election. joins us with more. >> just aa few days left. down market street right now campaigning at the commonwealth club. and we met teachers that were hitting the highway in favor of prop 30. the polls are close right now. really could go either way. >> when they hugged, we know they are going to vote yes. >> a new poll showed 51% of likely voters support prop 30 but then a new poll released this morning showed 48% support. i can't let this. i have my responsibility ies. >> voters just can't afford to bailout sacramento any more. haven't seen any reforms that would give them confidence that sending money to sacramento would help. it'
the newspaper endorsement, state after state they went for obama in 08, now mitt romney n 12, you see this in florida, nation alltel graph in new hampshire, in that state it was obama by 9 points in 2008, he is ahead by one now. you see it in state after state, momentum is with romney. lou: real clear politics does something interesting, compare, poll, polls for today, that poll to 2004, 2008, 2008, at this juncture, president then senator obama was running six and a half points ahead of senator mccain, in 2004, bush had a one and aal point lead on senator kerry, is that instructive or just sort of an amusing glimpse at history. >> political junkies, heard those were margins of 2004, and 8 for those who like to say national polling does not amount to much this is accurate. it is the state by state polls, that is less productive. but i make a basic point about the storm, i know a lot of democrats, if you go to liberal blogs, they are all holding hands, say it will be okay, they are trying to make a political point to of the way that president is responding to the hurricane. the average
after an event in another battleground state. >> mitt romney campaigned in florida wednesday but during his three rallies he never once mentioned president obama by name. >> i understand what it takes to get this country going again. and to bring back the kind of greatness we depend on. >> he refrained from an all out attack on the president who was visiting with disaster victims in new jersey. instead romney made his own pitch to help those affected by the storm. >> if you have the ability to help please provide some resources to people there and give calls to your loved ones and keep folks in your thoughts and prayers. it's a big part of what america is. >> the romney campaign ended up back pedalling wednesday over remarks he made about disaster relief funding. at a republican primary debate last year romney down played the federal government's role in disaster response. >> every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states that's the right direction. it can go further and send it back to the private sector that's even better.
in the critical battleground state, especially critical for him, of florida. peter alexander is with the romney campaign in jacksonville tonight. and peter, what is it like on the trail with this pre occupation going on? >> reporter: well brian, here tonight in the state of florida, it is all too familiar with the devastation. mitt romney tempered his criticism of president obama, not once mentioning president obama by name and in fact encouraged his supporters to give what they could. this of course, came a day after selecting supplies at a storm relief event, his campaign hosted in ohio. still, as the cleanup gets closer to where you are in the northeast, governor romney is facing questions on the federal government's role, arguing the sta states, even the private sector should take the lead today, romney put out a written statement reaffirming the belief, also vowing that fema would have the resources it needs. one more note, there are polls out and both campaigns say they are in the lead right now. the new polls, the president is clinging to a tight lead in the crucial battlegrounds of ohio
, romney heads to three states. he will be in the midwest in wisconsin and ohio. on friday night, ryan, romney, and their wifs kick off the final stretch in westchester, ohio, where they are joined by 100 governors, senators, and mayors. on friday romney travels to new hampshire and colorado. sunday is still up in the air. on the trail in florida, romney began laying out his arguments, a shorter message than last week. >> to get us on track to a balanced budget, that's going to take some real work. to get that done it going to require something in washington that's spoken about but not done and it's something i have to do. i've got to be able to reach across the aisle and get good republicans and democrats to work together. >> meanwhile, we've got new nbc news marist polls and they all show a tightening race. the president leads in the three that released today. in iowa, president obama maintains a lead. six-point lead over mitt romney. that is down from eight two weeks ago. in wisconsin, romney has cut the president's lead in half from the last time we were there. he trails by three p
show tied in new hampshire where romney has vacation home, and wisconsin, paul ryan's home state and iowa where president leads by six. democrats warn it's closer than that. in colorado, romney has the edge. 50-47. within the rasmussen margin of error. even the ground game to get out the vote looks like a tossup. the latest pew research study says across the country obama campaign reached 11% of likely voters. only 10% for the romney campaign. look at the swing state. the romney campaign has an edge to reach 14% of likely voters, only 13 from the obama camp. >> bret: carl, thank you. president obama switching things up a bit. for the final push. chief white house correspondent ed henry is with the president in las vegas. >> wardrobe change for president obama. flashing a bomber jacket from air force one to remind even he is still commander-in-chief for now. and while aides are also promising a change in message, with a new more positive tone in his final case -- >> our fight goes on because we know this nation cannot succeed. without a growing, thying middle class. >> he is still
11% of likely voters. only 10% for the romney campaign. look at the swing state. the romney campaign has an edge to reach 14% of likely voters, only 13 from the obama camp. >> bret: carl, thank you. president obama switching things up a bit. for the final push. chief white house correspondent ed henry is with the president in las vegas. >> wardrobe change for president obama. flashing a bomber jacket from air force one to remind even he is still commander-in-chief for now. and while aides are also promising a change in message, with a new more positive tone in his final case -- >> our fight goes on because we know this nation cannot succeed. without a growing, thying middle class. >> he is still going negative on romney with the campaign today charging the republican would be rubber stamp for the right wing. >> he is saying he is the candidate of change. well, let me tell you, wisconsin, we know what change looks like. governor is all for ensuring change. giving more power back to the biggest banks isn't change. leighing millions without health insurance isn't change. another $5 tril
. romney. he plans to visit at least 9 key battleground states between now and tuesday. and in the case of the usual suspects, ohio, florida, perhaps virginia, he will probably visit them more than once in the next four and a half days. and finally, the ground game, the get-out-the vote effort in the closing days will be increasingly intention. a recent pew research survey suggest that both campaigns are about equal in the overall nationwide. mr. obama's campaign has been able to reach about 11% of the electorate and mr. romney about 10%. virtually identical. and when you look at the battleground states, it's mr. romney who has been able it reach voters about 14% of them and mr. obama just a little bit shy of that, 13. virtually identical. the polls are virtually tied in the battleground states and nationally and the get-out-the-vote race seems to be as well. shep? >> shepard: carl cameron on the campaign trail tonight. we are getting a brand new picture of our economy in several new reports just days before the election. some clarity and details next. and the former president of penn s
of good signs for mitt romney. states like ohio we can continue to see signs that should bode well for barack obama. it's very hard to say, but when we look at this national number where you have states that are no intensely democrat like new york and california, and you have states that are intensely republican bike texas and alabama there should be a pretty substantial offset there. whatever the reality in that dozen or so 11 or 12 swing states, whatever the reality is the much wanted ground game, the argument that we heard from chicago over and over again, that they might lose on election day but they'll win the election because of early voting doesn't seem to be shaping up that way, that's why we are in the final days of this election in a dead head. megyn: karl rove talked about ohio and early voting and absentee ballots that were requested. he says back in 2008 barack obama his margin of victory -- start with me on the bottom of this graphic you're seeing. obama's margin of victory in 2008 it was 260,000 votes. i'm rounding. he says already in ohio we've seen a swing towards
states like nevada and wisconsin and iowa. that's the way that he holds on even if romney somehow runs the table in florida, virginia, and ohio. if he can hold those other states, he can still win. >> chuck, you go along with that? >> i do. >> we need virginia and florida? >> i have been trying -- the sunday romney schedule had been in the dark. they had set it up. here is the sunday schedule. we just got it. iowa, ohio, pennsylvania, and virginia. now -- >> pennsylvania, they got a chance there? yes. is it likely? >> feels like they're looking for more paths and more opportunities. they basically failed to expand the map early. they're hoping maybe hope upon hope that they steal a state late, that somehow they could scramble the whole thing up with pennsylvania. the fact is they're close in pennsylvania but it's lucy and the football close. >> there's a lot of work to be done by the democrats in southeastern pennsylvania. >> they do have work to do in western pennsylvania. there's a whole bunch of democratic -- your friend mark critz is in big trouble. >> i don't want to start a fight
think romney wins your state? >> yes i will go on record, it will be close, very, very close. as i said before we had more voter contacts. there is more enthusiasm there. a republican truly doesn't get elected because if there are not a lot of independent thinking democrats and independents. governor romney's message is so strong it will rule the day in pennsylvania. bill: 30 seconds left, the suburbs of philadelphia, does counties surround philadelphia are critical to winning the entire state and you're saying those counties will go republican this year? >> there is lot of mothers and fathers sent their sons and daughters to college and grad school in those counties and a lot of kids in philadelphia as well and they can't find jobs. 50% are still looking for work and they know the past four years is not a road map to a better future. they're prepared for new leadership. i think they will go with governor romney. bill: tom ridge, thank you, mr. secretary. >> thank you. bill: martha. martha: there is much more on the aftermath of hurricane sandy but also as you just been hearing tom ridg
a lot. >>neil: you think romney can afford to lose your state? >>guest: i wouldn't suggest that. i don't think you want to lose ohio. if you lose ohio it puts into play a lot of other states that romney folks hope they win, like a state like virginia, i don't think you want to be in a position of where you can say we can afford to lose he he but we will pick it up somewhere else. >>neil: what did you think of governor christie with the president in new jersey yesterday saying he was doing, help is help and he will take it. there have been a lot of people in the republican party saying it did not look good and the timing of it so close to the election next week almost represented a slap to mitt romney. what do you say? >>guest: i say when you go of a state and your state has been absolutely decimated and devastated and somebody comes in to help you, i likely to give them a big hug and thank them. i told somebody earlier today about this, if you have a loved one that is in a operating room and you don't know how it will go and weapon the doctor walks out and says, the patient is fine, pa
numbers and state numbers. according to the national numbers, dead heat or romney slightly ahead, but the state by state breakdowns are showing that obama has the edge. stuart: i don't know how you can account for that. how can you have one candidate in the lead nationally, but behind in the key states like ohio? i don't know how that could work out, quite frankly, i don't get it. >> you're right, it can't work and that's why basically people are picking and choosing, are they going with the national or the state numbers. there's a the lot of reasons why it could be. for one thing the national pollsters have been around for a while, you know, they've got their methodology and the state polling is done by different methodologist, we'll find out november 6th who is right, but looks to me, karl rove does make a good point. when you've got ohio saying that we're going to have democrats the same turnout in 2008 when people were so excited about their candidate and so much less excited about him now. and there's no question there's a problem there. and that's the thing, every, every po
energized and they saw of the bomb in the polls. it remains neck-and-neck in the state. a state mitt romney very much wants to change from blue for barack obama back to read with the win for the republicans. it will be three other names under the virginia ballot. he served in virginia state senate as a member of congress between 1997 and 2009. carey johnson was the republican governor of new mexico. a representative of the green party. he she is a position focused on the environment. she was arrested for taking supplies and food for activists in texas. this could make a difference in the tight race. >> another big competition on the ballot is the senate race between tim kaine and george allen. the numbers show the lead is shrinking. the latest poll shows 50% and allen at 46. 4% are undecided. allen has gained since the beginning of october. they know d.c. and virginia and both are focused on the economy. >> the one thing to do is not raise taxes. that would only cause more job losses. >> that -- i want to make sure the sacrifice is shared. >> in the final days of campaigning, both are leani
governor romney is leading in a battleground state. >> no, we haven't. but he feels really good about florida. his team does. i don't think it's a double-digit lead, but they're feeling good about florida. they're feeling good about wisconsin. they think the apparatus in place from the efforts on behalf of scott walker are going to galvanize republicans and make sure that a ground game turns out the vote. the same for mitt romney and paul ryan. they are feeling good about a lot of states where they've closed with the president, if they haven't surpassed him. what they're always hoping, too, tamron is that this is 1980 and that there's going to be a last-minute wave for romney. had they come to the polls, they go, i've really gone back and forth. it's time for something new and that he ends up winning, and maybe it's not by a landslide, but by a very healthy margin. and that's what they're counting on in these final days. >> keith, let me bring you in. i want to play a little bit of what the director of marist polling had to say about what we're seeing in some of these numbers. let's p
to four states including wisconsin and colorado. and florida, mitt romney backed off as he acknowledged those struggling in the aftermath of the storm. >> keep folks in your thoughts and prayers. it is a big part of what america is. >> both candidates will refocus. >> memories are short. by the weekend, we will be focusing on the candidates. >> so far, it has been up to the surrogates to do the slamming. jeb bush had some choice words about president obama. >> his entire strategy is to blame others, starting with my brother, of course. >> joe biden return the favor with a swipe at romney in the sunshine state. >> his plans are not sketchy, they are etch a sketchy. >> biden is on the trail today, so is the president, in the west and midwest. mitt romney has to virginia, with that state's governor has asked towns hit hard by sandy to extend some hours for early and absentee voting. >>, the impact of voting on tuesday? >> that is a good question. we spoke with some analysts who say, it should not be a huge distraction. any sort of disruption indicates you'll likely see it more on the local
romney is on the ground in virginia, in the southern part of the state. it is the governor's second event, by the way, of the day there. earlier today in central virginia, the governor resumed his message that he is the change candidate. this election, something he started before the storm. >> if the president were to be re-elected, you're going to see high levels of unemployment continue and stalled wage growth, if any wage growth at all, just like we've seen over the last four years. >>> and we're also getting a look at a new round of battleground polls all showing the president leading or running neck and neck with governor romney. in iowa the president is ahead six appointments among likely voters. he had an eight-point lead earlier this month. in wisconsin, the score is 49-46. the president's three-point lead there is just within the margin of error. look at new hampshire, the governor romney has cut the president's lead to just two points. the governor was down seven before the debate. let me bring in our political panel for this thursday before election day. nbc news senior politic
, to play defense. from the democrats, romney can't find the votes for the battleground states, so he's throwing wild passes where he can't win. the new polls out today suggest the democrats are right, this is a distraction, not a reality. also, that romney jeep advertisement we told you about yesterday was so dishonest, so misleading that chrysler and gm executives themselves are pushing back. people expect politicians to trim the truth a bit, but it's possible that mitt romney has just crossed a line that not even the most uninformed voters will accept, that jeep is moving to china. and look who's back, joe isuzu, speaking of dishonesty, this time campaigning, kind of, for mitt romney. >> i'm joe isuzu. guys, vote for mitt romney and you'll get a free binder full of women, you have my word on it! >> well, in case you missed that, it's a spoof, sort of, and it's in the "sideshow." joe isuzu is back. finally, let me finish with the best way to fight people who play racial politics -- get out there and vote. this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> we've got new national polls o
now with just six days to go. mitt romney pours big bucks into some of the swing states that he may be losing. >>> i'm michael finley. ahead on 7 on your side, the frustration of automatic bill pay. >>> there is a new presidential order today. 15 minute rule for federal agencies to respond to requests for help in new jersey. residents of the jersey shore are have lost their homes and businesses to superstorm sandy. abc 7 news reporter david louie is in the newsroom now with video of the destruction. david? >> superstorm storm sandy has done an estimated $20 billion in property damage, much of it along the new jersey shore. recovery it on the mind of residents but the biggest challenge is where and how to get started. the damage is widespread. the scope of the destruction is best seen from overhead. miles of new jersey shoreline, a summer play ground for generations have been battered by sandy's fierce winds and relentless waves. roofs were ripped off, turning homes inside out. off the coast in the town of sea side heights the boardwalk and amusement park were swept away. the rollerc
states. they hold the key to the election. for those who think romney will carry ohio, maybe they are right, but we don't see it that way. if we have that leaning obama. we shall see on monday whether any of them slip. we are monitoring them on an hourly basis. we are looking to the jobs report on friday. it may be the last piece of new information that could affect the election. host: any fallout or benefit from hurricane sandy for the candidates? guest: i think it's becoming clear that this has been a plus for president obama. how big, we will see. if you are the incumbents and you're in a tough race, what do you want to do? you want to look presidential. that's a great advantage of incumbency. that is precisely the way he has looked, with the help of his new best friend chris christie. i guess bill clinton will have to step aside. he was the president's new best friend. now it's chris christie. with that bipartisan blessing, the president looks good. for mitt romney, he was pushed off the stage. this storm was a kind of circuit breaker for about three days. momentum, at le

[applause] now i want to thank governor jeb bush. what a great leader you have in governor bush. i want to thank congressman connie mack for getting into this race and he's going to surprise a lot of people and win next tuesday night. thank you john for entertaining and supporting and for helping so many people come together to make contributions to the red cross. i know senator john thrasher is here somewhere. he's somewhere. and congressman crenshaw is here. thank you -- there they are down in the corner. thank you. they are good men and appreciate their help tonight.

about that. >> mitt romney also started campaigning tuesday but traveled to the battleground state of ohio to encourage donation tots red cross. >> romney: i appreciate the fact that people right here in dayton got up this morning and went to the grocery store and purchased some things that these families will need. >> cenk: here is a couple of problems with that. first of all, the red cross doesn't want those canned goods. unfortunately, due to logistical constraints, the red cross does not accept or solicit individual donations or collections of items. items of food, clothes need to be sorted, cleaned and repackaged and transported which impedes the money and personnel. oops. at least their heart was in the right place or was it political--of course it was political. when people came in, press badges were titled victory rally. they may not have had time to change that. i'll give them a pass on that. romney's video bio was played. not so bad if you ask me. then the donation was required to meet romney but a lot of people had already turned in their donations or had not brought the
, they are mostly dead even. romney spent his day in virginia, a tied state, telling a crowd in roanoke, that the president is clueless when it comes to business. >> and so we came up with an idea last week, which is he's going to create the department of business. ( laughter ) i don't think adding a new chair in his cabinet will help add millions of jobs on main street. we don't need a secretary of business to understand business; we need a president who understands business, and i do. that's why i will be able to get this economy going. >> woodruff: a charge his running mate paul ryan continued later in colorado. >> he's got a new idea for the >> you know, we already have a secretary of business. it's actually called the secretary of commerce. that's what this... that's what this agency does. >> woodruff: meanwhile, vice president joe biden spent the day in iowa, where he attacked ryan's budget plan. >> look, ryan saying that his budget doesn't cut-- it just slows-- is a little like romney standing in an unemployment line and saying to the unemployed guy, look, i want to make it clear
to state and local governments? in other words, 14 we do it the way we do it or should we do it the romney way? and it's really impressive. the -- only 37% of republicans agree with romney in this poll. that's the 37% you see of republicans who think state and local should carry the whole burden. richard, the romney position as happily described by him during those republican primaries, he just can't speak a word of that right now. >> the natural disaster they're looking at are those numbers. and that's why he's doing these flip-flops right now. when you are in an election that is separated by one or two points in pretty much all the critical states and your opponent is getting 78% approval, 78% approval, for his behavior on a national stage just a few days before an election, that's a political disaster. never mind the natural one that everyone else is suffering. >> many republicans concerned about this chris christie embrace of president obama, which makes perfect sense from a governing standpoint. >> sure. >> rush limbaugh thinks he's got it all figured out. let's listen to rush on this
in mitt romney. he's the right candidate at the right time to be the president of the united states. [applause] you know in the state of florida we have 820,000 people out of work, people who will looking for work, people who have given up looking for work. we need someone who understands how jobs are created. that individuals create jobs not government that creates jobs.

. >> both candidates expected to use the last few days in swing states with romney planning to hold his last rally monday night in new hampshire. >> on his way up to new hampshire, sounds like he's going to spend a good amount of time in pennsylvania, at least spending money there. >> reporter: pennsylvania is supposed to be a lock for president obama. the last time a republican won was 1988. but they elected pat toomey to the senate in 2010, elected a republican governor, 12 of the last 20 seats in the house are republican and they feel they have a shot and want to expand the electoral map with 20 electoral votes. they think they can do well in affluent suburban, philadelphia and even take a shot in allegheny county which has not gone republican since 1972 >> can't be good news for the obama campaign? >> no, it is not good news for the obama campaign. they are defending seats. all these battleground states that we are talking about, you know, he won pennsylvania by 681,000 votes, 10% points. he should be trying, the president, expanding rather than defending but all they care about is winni
and the election, while sprinkling in the battleground states. now let me show you this, where mitt romney is going, two stops in ohio over the next four days. but he also adds two stops in new hampshire, florida, virginia, ohio, if he swept all three, he would be four short, new hampshire seems to be the best state, here is why, the numbers, iowa, the small state, sticking with obama, he is up by six in the latest poll, wisconsin, paul ryan's home state, as part of the obama firewall, romney would like to get it, still trails by three points president t look at new hampshire, while the president trails by two, new hampshire looks like the state that will go romney, romney's economic numbers are better than the president, and the president's job approval rating is less than better there. but i'll show you the crucial state ends up sitting here as ohio, if you look at these numbers here. in the road to 270, the missing ingredient is ohio, brian. >> all right, as we'll be discussing, something tells me, tuesday night, chuck todd at the board, as we continue along the way. why visitors to new york won
with the effects of sandy, mitt romney continues to campaign in key battleground states. we've got brand-new poll numbers. all of that, and our own brian williams goes home to battered point pleasant beach, new jersey. >> announcer: this is "early today" for thursday, november 1st, 2012. >>> good morning. i'm lynn berry. the very latest on sandy. at least 74 people in the u.s. have died as a result of hurricane sandy. millions remain without power, and recovery isn't coming nearly fast enough. new jersey is just one of the places there are major gasoline shortages. people are waking up with canisters and walking up with canisters trying to get fuel. and further down the coast, take a look as cars are lined up for blocks, if not miles. some people waited more than an hour for a chance to fill up. >>> another big oil problem, a massive leak, a fuel leak at a tank facility. more than 300,000 gallons of diesel crude spilled into the water separating new jersey from staten island. containment booms are keeping the oil where it is. >>> in connecticut, these are such intense images. look at that as thre
